CE: Hybrid Ceramic Permanent Restorations
Russell A. Giordano II, DMD, DMSc
Because 3D printing is rapidly evolving as an alternative to machining and other traditional fabrication techniques, the appropriateness of hybrid ceramics for 3D printing, including their physical properties, is reviewed in this article. This article also examines the advantages and drawbacks of machining versus 3D printing and considers the evidence for 3D printed materials for permanent restorations.

Restoring a Tooth With a Short Clinical Crown
Dennis J. Fasbinder, DDS
This article discusses the challenges involved in restoring a tooth that has a short clinical dimension and thus limited availability of interarch space. Selection of the appropriate restorative material, in which adequate occlusal thickness is an important consideration, is discussed, and the step-by-step protocol for tooth preparation, delivery techniques, and bonding are outlined.
